The original San Miguel Brewery was founded as La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel in 1890 by Don Enrique Ma. Barreto under a Spanish Royal Charter that officially permitted the brewing of beer in the Philippines. It became the San Miguel Brewery in 1913 and later it was renamed San Miguel Corporation in 1963. The origins of the Spanish-made San Miguel Beer date back to 1946, when the San Miguel president Andres Soriano, Sr. set up a brewery in Spain named La Segarra, S.A. and gave it a licence to brew San Miguel Beer.
